Trump fires an operative over apparent Florida squabble

Donald Trump's campaign on Wednesday fired operative Rick Wiley amid interal turmoil that leads to Florida.

"Rick Wiley was hired on a short-term basis as a consultant until the campaign was running full steam," the campaign said in a statement. "It is now doing better than ever, we are leading in the polls, and we have many exciting events ready to go, far ahead of schedule, while Hillary continues her long, boring quest against Bernie. We would like to thank Rick for helping us during this transition period."

Bloomberg earlier had described a power struggle between Wiley and Karen Giorno in Florida.
